About the property


In a maginificent position on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, offering far reaching views of the wooded valleys and countryside. The four cottages are converted 18th century stone farm buildings. Great care has been taken in creating each one to blend in with the original features with all the modern conveniences you would expect. Still boasting timbered ceilings and stone walls, each cottage has a well equipped kitchen, gas fired heating, electricity for cooking and entertainment. There is a colour tv with freeview, DVD player, CD/radio and a microwave in each cottage, along with an iron and ironing board and hairdryer. All bed linen, together with towels and tea towels provided. All cottages are non-smoking. 3,4 and 7 night breaks available all year. Our full weeks commence Friday or Monday in main season but we can be flexible in winter.

Lovely little cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 4 night stay at Sproxton Hall Cottages. The cottage was clean and cosy with lovely views. The only thing I struggled with was the small kitchen. We'd come straight from a weeks stay in Whitby and had a lot of stuff with us that I couldn't store in the cupboards so just had to leave them in bags under the stairs area. Wasn't really a problem though. My two daughters loved it as they could play safely outside with their kites and me and my husband could sit on the picnic benches with a coffee - lovely! We walked from the cottage into Helmsley which was great, leaving the car behind for a change. The route/map is in the cottage for guests to use which is a really good idea as we wouldn't have realised we could do that without the map. I would also recommend the walk from Helmsley to Rievaulx Abbey.

Very quiet and good for visiting North yorkshire

  • 4 of 5

Nice little cottages. We were staying in Riccal. The double room small, but large wardrobe and chest of drawers in twin room so we could put things in there. The only thing is it advertises Wifi on Owners direct. But it doesn't work, also the cottage next door has a hub and that didn't work. The only way to get it is sit outside the owners door!. Helmsley is a great town and there are lots of places and pubs nearby to visit and eat out

Owner's Response: Am happy to know that you enjoyed your stay with us. I apologise for the problem with the wifi which has now been rectified. The hub needed to be reset to connect to the main router!

Loved our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Had a really lovely stay at Riccal Dale. Cottage was clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. Owners were available if needed. The views were beautiful and we were able to sit outside taking it all in with a glass of wine as we were very lucky with the weather.

We will definitely recommend it to friends and family and we hope to return again ourselves..

total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this charming cottage was a last minute decision but the owners were si kind and helpful. We were charned by our cottage and delightewith the fresh scones and cream owner had made. Cottage is only a 2 mile walk from Helmsley across fields and the location was peaceful and bear a farm.

cottage was impeccably clean and nicely furnished, very comfortable

enjoyed feeding the chickens and they have pigs and sheep too

cant wait to return

Inadequate for 4 people

  • 3 of 5

Picturesque in a quiet location. Good base for walking. Cottage was Clean and tidy but quite small. There were only 3 in our party which was a good job as there were only 3 comfortable seats in the lounge area. Convenient for Helmsley. Surprised no one stopped by to check all was OK. Could benefit from wifi. Overall a pleasant stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Thank you for your review i'm so sorry that you felt the size of the cottage was inadequate but pleased your stay was pleasant overall. We do live on site and my husband did greet you when you arrived. Riccal Dale Cottage is a conversion of a cow byre, retaining lots of original features, as a result, some of the rooms are cosy. However, there is a three seater sofa in the lounge together with an armchair. Kind regards. Gill
